Download Hour1 Download Hour2 First, Gore Vidal on the recent election and the theocratic assault on the American state. Then we turn to the other juggernaut on our horizon, the collapse of industrial civilization as a result of energy depletion and the choices we face, as explained by ecologist Richard Heinberg in his recent book Powerdown: options and actions for a post carbon world.
